We Are Thankful

 How things change in a year....Last Thanksgiving, I was frantically trying to pick out paint colors, car seats, cribs, and wondering how to prepare for a baby in less than 3 months (and its highly likely that I was driving Will a little crazy too!).  This year we have a beautiful 9 month old daughter who has changed our lives forever.  Our entire family has so much to be thankful for this year, but Will and I are especially thankful that God chose us to be Frances' parents and He gave us the opportunity to take a journey into the world of parenthood.
Frances one week before Thanksgiving last year!
We had a fun fun Thanksgiving week!  Frances and I got to spend 5 days in MS with Meme, Sage, Jack, and the girls, and Frances is wiped out from all the excitement.  Grump and Will traveled over for a few days too.  Brooks and Irene are doing very well at home and they are so tiny and perfect.  Anna continues to do well also, and will hopefully join her sisters soon.  Frances really seemed to take notice of the babies- especially when I laid her on the floor near them....I think all these girls are going to have a lot of fun!  Here are some pictures from the week:
Frances is not so stationary anymore- she navigated from her play area to here!
Irene and Brooks
Eating "real" food and loving it!
Sage feeding Anna
Playing and checking each other out,

Frances just being her fun self!

Frances was a very responsible babysitter.
Jack not quite sure about reaching inside the big ole turkey.

"Now you girls just follow what I do. I know all the tricks."

Frances has gotten really good at holding her bottle!
Happy Thanksgiving!
